GlitchHiker

A game that self-destructs — both visually and structurally — as you play it. And once it’s done, the executable file no longer works.

GlitchHiker was created for Global Game Jam on the theme “Extinction.” People could play the game at the event, but eventually it self-destructed — never playable again. All that remains is a video of the gameplay.

There is more info at Create Digital Motion and Vlambeer. As well as the game’s official page where you can download it, even though it won’t work anymore.

A fascinating instance of ephemeral software.
